to the federal election commission in washington. >> we have been able to achieve consensus, and i'm hoping that we're going to be able to do the same at the s.e.c. >>> good evening. welcome to "wqed newsroom." the top political watchdog scored a major win this week and california's fptc announced $1 million fine in a case of campaign money laundering. the settlement is against two nonprofits until last year's election. >> the nonprofit and the donors to them thought to exploit loopholes in california disclosure laws. >> the contributions were intended to help defeat governor brown's proposition 30 to raise taxes and pass the anti-labor measure proposition 32. they went to court before the november election pushing the group to disclose the true source of the contribution. she's now headed to washington d.c. to serve as president obama's appointee on the federal election commission. before thursday's settlement was announced, she spoke with scott shafer about the challenges of informing voters about the flood of money in today's political campaign. >> welcome to "newsroom." >> thank you ver
expressions of that will be elections next year. >> warner: u.s. troops left iraq for good at the end of 2011, though it continued some military sales and development aid. now maliki wants a lot more military hardware, including apache helicopters and fighter jets, and stepped-up counter- terrorism and intelligence assistance. but after the meeting, maliki sought to respond to the president's urging that he be more politically inclusive at home. >> ( translated ): what we want is for iraq and the region to be able to work together. and we are working in iraq and mobilizing our people to fight al qaida. the democractic experience in iraq is nascent and fragile, but it was born very strong.; we democracy needs to be strong because it alone will allow us to fight terrorism. >> warner: the need is urgent: since the spring, iraq has seen the worst bloodletting in more than five years, mostly directed against shia civilians. and united nations report today issued eye-popping figures for october-- nearly 1,000 more iraqis killed, many at mass gatherings like weddings, funerals and schools. the toll
was elected. what are you making up? is this a church, state issue? >> you got in on the consistent, the ones that depict the new pope, john? >> who knows. saved a lot of money. those guys have not done anything that was not known to the national security council and the white house and the idea of blaming these guys who are doing the job they were signed to do and oh my goodness, for miss feinstein, that there's a touch of hypocrisy here. >> there's a lot of outrage. i'm with clapper on this issue as well. i mean, i think because of the technological advances and the fact that we can now, you know, look in on people's cell phones, that you know, there has to be some more guidelines brought into this thing. but overall, friends spy on friends, it's not going to stop. >> what do you think of that? >> i think, well, i'm not enough people, clearly. there's no doubt that this has been going on for ever in one form or another. you can't tell me that the administration didn't know about it, because they were given reports about all of this. this came from -- this is ridiculous. so we all knew i
elected prime minister maliki and his shiite-dominated government share the blame for the rising dangers to their country by monopolizing government power in a way that has rekindled sunni resentment and anger. arizona senator john mccain is among them. >> the major reason for the unraveling in iraq was maliki's failure to govern in an inclusive fashion. measures which he has taken which have alienated the sunni population, therefore a breeding ground, therefore then assistance to syria. i think the genesis was the failure of maliki's government, and it was taken advantage of by the situation in syria. >> reporter: obama administration officials don't disagree, but want to help maliki anyway. the reason, explains ryan crocker, is that there's still much at stake in what happens in iraq for the security of the u.s. and the wider region. >> we are seeing the most volatile and bloody times in the middle east's modern history and it is denominated in sectarian terms. this is more than anything a sectarian fight, iraq has been through that, al-qaeda is doing its best to reignite it. the situa
to the benefit of everybody if he is willing to take that step. obama said there should be a new election law and iraqi. what should that be? >> there is a dispute right now and primee kurds minister nouri al-maliki and people in parliament over whether he should have elections by in the visual province, with winner take all per province, or country wide. so if kurds have 19% countrywide, they will have 20% of the seats in parliament. that is a struggle. >> even if the prime minister invited more sunnis into the government, would that be taken seriously? >> i think so. the sunnis are split on whether to work with nouri al-maliki, joint out, or whether to extremist factions like al qaeda. the more he does and the more the parliament does and the more the shia and kurds due to bring in the sunni minority, what we have seen in the past is the more they will stand up against the terrorist. >> when you look at the enormous cost to the u.s., you know that better than anyone in terms of dollars, in terms of the region, in terms of u.s. lives, iraqi , is it similar to the 2003 invasion? >> i get this
in arguing for this. including a number of senate democrats whose jobs are on the line in the next election. gwen: has there been any discussion at the white house, alexis, about this, about a aying, denying, or concession they should have done that sooner? >> yeah. this is the answer we get. that is very realistic assessment they're making. if the website cannot be fixed, really truly fixed to allow the kind of shopping that you would envision, within a certain range of time leading up to the january deadline, january 1 deadline, as you know, insurers normally -- for all the paperwork we need several weeks. the plan goes into effect. you can be insured january 1. or you can be insured all the way until march 31 which is what we were just talking about. so the administration is saying holding the line, we don't think we need to enroll. but what they're telling democrats quietly is listen, if it turns out that all of these people that we need for these risk pools, not just older and sicker but the younger and the healthier, if they're not signing up, then we may have to reassess. gwen: and t
or the golden dawn in greece, and the is just won an election in france, and could be -- and could be the strongest party on the right within a year or two. so you have got to figure out the, the economics that are not growing and we see this happening in the 1930s or 1970's people get very dissatisfied and they look for something different, they have been fed a diet of austere at this by the mainstream parties and looking elsewhere and this could be another part of political turmoil not just extreme parties get in but normal parties pander to them because of immigration or on business or whatever. >> rose: nationalistic issues. >> exactly. >> i think exact you, a actually you are right but i woul would d another point, not just economies are not growing fast enough and slow growth it is the political economy of slow growth at a time when inequality is widening and there is the gains from the growth there is overwhelmingly to few people so for the very person in a lot of the rich world, the stagnating or even falling, that is just not a sustainable situation for years and years and
what it's an anomaly in the world. to have elections on a tuesday. why would they do that? tuesday nobody shows up. >> rose: that's another -- >> it's a big deal -- >> rose: i'm all with you on that the too. not on tuesday or not necessarily -- a whole lot of things you can do to make the system better. i'm thinking of a whole number of places. there are whole tons of parties in israel for example but they are essentially to three parties, you know. >> yes. >> rose: i mean the labor and -- run for a while and that's down. they've got a series of small religious parties who simply form coalitions. >> israel is a peculiar place but mexico for example we have five parties at least. >> rose: it's hard to talk to mexico when you have one party that dominated mexico for most of its history. >> until it changed and now we have a lot. ha ha ha. >> rose: so is mexico better under preparty. >> it's definitely better now with competition. because you can choose, you know. hillary say well, this thing about the government grid lock should be a lesson for americans so that they put attenti
in the election. so when you look at the gop from a national perspective, senator mccain, other senators in the republican party who were thinking on the broader scale, on the national scale, for them it's very important to include something that includes a pathway to citizenship so they can start having a better conversation with hispanic voters who continue to increase, who continue to be a bigger portion of the electorate. but at the same time, when you look at these house members, a lot of them, just from 2010 to 2012, after redistricting, house republicans represent 6.6 million fewer minorities. now their districts are, on average, up to 75% white. so there are just dozens and dozens and dozens of house republicans who have just a tiny, tiny fraction of minorities in their district, so for them, this idea of the grander party trying to appeal to hispanics is not as important for them. it doesn't really resonate back in their home district, so for them it's not that important. so i would say there is a good, good chunk of that house that is just resistant to anything that includes a
a wave election and vote them out of the house and get control. that makes the democrats want to not come from is at all, to want to grind down republicans and stick to their issues. will have ammer, we chance to see that wave. politicians have a keen sense of peril. at this point host of them know that something politically dangerous is out there. we will see some adjustments. >> the secretary of health and human services said they would have this obamacare website figured out i the end of november. -- by the end of november. if she does not they are indeed cotton. -- deep cotton. >> they have set the date and if it is not correct in functioning, you have more than disillusionment, you have a real fury. i will say this, i do not pretend to be objective about her. it was so refreshing to hear someone say i am accountable. >> i agree. it was refreshing. if you look into it she also did not know anything. she said i was as surprised as anyone else. either that is not true or there is something fundamentally wrong that the head of the department is caught by surprise by this. >> inside the w
predecessor, hosni mubarak, has been on trial. egypt's first democratically elected president, now behind bars and defiant. i am still president of the republic, he shouted, and i am here against my will. what is happening here is providing cover for the military coup. chaos erupted several times. several egyptian journalists were yelling, "execution. xecution." the judge called for quiet, but there were shouting matches between opponents and supporters of morsi. security was incredibly tight, several layers deep. what went on inside the courtroom was a deposed president determined to have his say. mohamed morsi spoke out repeatedly, shouting at the judge even when his voice became horse. to read the hearing, he and his fellow accused kept repeating they did not recognize the court. it was a very different picture last june, when mohamed morsi was triumphant at the ballot box. massive protests at his divisive rule. the army removed him, saying it was the will of the people. a military government is in charge now. >> the judicial system in egypt is independent. he was given all the rights to de
this is happening are you in the midst of an election for a new mayor. how do these proceedings play into election that's the interesting side part they are going to allow lech a new mayor an both say they should not be in bankruptcy. both should not say there should not be an emergency manager running, one candidate says if january if he takes office will go to the governor with his own restructuring plan and ask to be put in place and for them to remove the emergency manager. so you have different political situation that is brewing over on this side and it's going to be very interesting to see how a new mayor works with the governor and the emergency manager because the old one right now says he feels that he's been pushed aside-- aside and has no part in what is going on. >> brown: explain that for all of us on the outside because it is confusion. so when a new mayor comes in, will he or she have the power to-- derail the bankruptcy but can do what? >> he doesn't have the power to derail the bankruptcy but he says he wants to-- either one of them said they want to have more input in the proces
-tracking, they call it, with our elected representatives given the choice only of voting it up or down. last year, over 130 members of congress asked the white house for more transparency about what's being negotiated and were essentially told to go fly a kite. you can be sure of this, however. a select group of corporate partners, companies like generax electric, goldman sachs, and pfizer, the pharmaceutical giant, are not likely to be in the dark. players like these stand to be the real beneficiaries of the agreement, because like other so-called "free trade" agreements, tpp actually will reward those at the top, even as it creates rules that will override domestic laws on the environment, workplace safety, and investment. corporate lobbyists already are lining up in washington to ram the agreement through once the white house hurries it out of the delivery room. how do we know this? because some vigilant independent watchdogs are tracking the negotiations with sources they trust, and two are with me now. yves smith is an expert on investment banking and the founder of aurora advisers, a new yo

election, you're in the house, 80-20 votes. and you have a very strong set of positions as you have people in your district. if you're interested in staying in the congress, you don't care what the president of the united states says or anybody else for that matter. >> rose: too big to fail. does it continue to exist and should it exist. >> it continues to exist. it's getting worse, and it's a danger to the system. the reason it is a danger is basically an issue which is a little complex but i hopefully describe it in there. it's how savings move into investing. the only way that you got a growing standard of living is that the scarce savings of a society are channeled through the financial system into real capital investment which builds up the capital stock and that's the base of where our standard of living comes from. we have a limited amount of savings, to the extent that there are firms which are too big to fail. and, there's another qualification here that they are inefficient. they are absorbing the savings that would ordinarily go into high tech industries and enhance the standar
) plan. >> these are your 401(k) election forms. as you can see, there are numerous options to choose from. and remember, this is your retirement, so make your selections carefully. >> smith: but most people remember their first 401(k) meeting as dumbfounding. >> any questions? >> i had no idea. i was so confused. i came out of that meeting and i was like, "oh, my god." it was overwhelming for me, the knowledge that you had to have in order to invest. >> i really was kind of clueless. i didn't know what i wanted to invest in. i really didn't know anything about it. i had learned somewhere something about, "if you're young, you should be more willing to take risk. you have time." so other than that, i really knew nothing. >> and that's one of the best aspects of this... >> they showed you the plan. you either had your choices between an aggressive investment, moderate, or conservative. you know, there was nobody there managing my money; it was all up to me. >> so traditional pensions don't necessarily let you take it all in a lump sum... >> the 401(k) is one of the only products that a
be done through a puncture in the elect and three day hospitalization without opening the chest. remarkable technology. >> rose: what else is the most exciting frontier of heart care. >> i think mechanical support for patients with failing hearts. >> rose: the pump he had. >> yes. over the last couple decades the number of heart transplant operations in the united states has been very static at about 2000 operations per year. many more patients need a heart transplant that would viefer to get it and now patients like the vice president will survive with a ventricular device, a mechanical pump. but the pumps are becoming so good and so small that we're moving towards sort of a paradigm where instead of thinking about the replacing the heart with a transplanted organ, we'll just replace it with a completely implantable system, recharged through batteries that can be recharged transcutaneously and patients will go on and have an implanted mechanical pump either as a total artificial heart or as a partial artificial heart. >> rose: and they talk about those kind of behavioral fac
for their communities. but those elected who are trying to ignore the opportunities presented and continue to throw up roadblocks both here in congress and in state legislators should not now seem surprised that there are significant bumps along the way. this seems to be completely disingenuous. >> reporter: in today's testimony, secretary sebelius didn't address calls by some republicans that she resign. she promised again the website will be fixed by november 30. and she took on the criticism insurance companies are canceling thousands of existing policies despite the president's pledge individuals could keep their plans if they wanted to. in other words, they'd be grandfathered in. >> we outlined the grandfather policy so people could keep their own plans. we then began to implement the other features of the affordable care act. so if someone is buying a brand new policy in the individual market today or last week, they will have consumer protections for the first time. but if, again, a plan is in place and was in place at the time that the president signed the bill and the consumer wants to keep t
on the security council when 15 seat position was long thought after had been elected this would have been given saudi arabia a great deal of calling but the saudis reacted and said they are very disappoint with the the united states, in fact outraged at its passivity on syria and its failure to arm and support the rebels and opening up a dialogue with iran so this has led to an unprecedented rift. >> the saudis are acting childish and acting like united states is more important to the united states than saudi arabia is to, or than happen than the united states is zero to saudi arabia, we see this across the area, rather the divisions among the sheikdoms so this is a time that because of iraq, because of syria, we are seeing kind of a realignment of loyalties, of interest groups, and this plays out in particularly in iraq and syria today. >> rose: david, back to all of these points, but just come back to you in terms of conflict between saudi arabia and iran and wha what the iranians, whate saudis are saying but also how the u.s. might respond to this, because as you know susan rice recently sai
